Ethics Speaker On-Campus

October 2nd, Tuesday, I had the chance to attend an enterprising ethics speaker on campus – Steven M. Dastoor. He talked about his journey from business to business after he moved to United States from the U.K. Steven shared his story in the limited time available and definitely left us wise insight and motivation. He is the founder and owner of four different firms in the Information Technology industry in two locations with a net worth f $18 million. He runs these companies with his partner – Sean Dean. He currently sits as the CEO of two firms.

Core values and ethics seemed a subject Steven held his pride in. He talked about how he has been diplomatic in the past but never let his intercity fumble. He narrated brief examples of ethical issues encountered, like employers wanting him to manipulate data, issue fake insurance claims, or even hide information.

Steven pointed out how we, as people deal with ethics, morals and value related issues regularly on a daily basis, and yet simply don’t recognize it until the boundaries are pushed. I personally resonated with his statement. I think we all learn to handle issues better with experience, empathy and expertise. But trying to make solid decisions neglecting your core principles may someday come bit you back.

Maintaining your values and integrity, hopefully not the sole aim, but definitely should on your priority list. With that, I hope more students attend such insightful speakers and make the most of our resources, guests and college.
